Interesting, is the SX500 the replacement for the SX40?

Two New PowerShot Cameras to be announced (CR1)
« Reply #4 on: August 14, 2012, 03:29:22 AM »
Two New PowerShot Cameras this month? Neither of these cameras seem like successors for the G12 I do hope this 'news' is wrong and there is a G series to be released soon.

Anyway if SX160 IS s a successor to the SX150 IS
http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/consumer/products/cameras/digital_cameras/powershot_sx150_is
 then it probably wont have an articulated screen like the G series. As to the sensor well that's anyone's guess??? Processor is not digic 5, no raw? I'll pass.

Where's the 90x zoom model?

urgently waiting for it, and it should have at least 36Mp to compete with the nikon D800. Maybe it has even a dept of field mode to simulate the FF sensor :)

Both of these cameras look kinda ugly..
Anyway, a compact sized camera with a powerful zoom is always tempting!
SX500 IS is a new line?

5.8 and 5.9 on the long end?
No, thanks!

Canon - where is your compact camera with bright lens???
28-200 2.4-3.5L with 2/3" 8 years ago and you can't do it better now? It's profitable to sold DSLR and lenses to prosumers...

No thanks. I thought when a couple of new Powershots were going to be announced at least one would be the successor to the G12.    :-\

Well folks here they are apparently and obviously no successor to the G12, how utterly disappointing. Maybe we have to wait till Photokina for that?  :(

Agree, but I though the G12 and S100 successors were due to be announced later this month?

OK fine... but

the lenses are a little slow.    I enjoy my SX 230 HS as a fun little P&S camera -- but its replacement got slower at the wide end, and with these cameras the trend continues...

How about some 70D 6D 3D 7DmkII rumors....  Here's an inclusive compendium...
